It would be interesting if LDC could hook into it.

Sounds interesting, once the MIR backend/translator from LLVM IR is complete. The guy apparently has to fight the ABI insanities imposed by LLVM - I feel your pain, dude. :]

well maybe the only criticism I would have toward the article is that it says that libfirm is a huge codebase (140 KSLOC) without more details. It is indeed but it compiles very fast in itself (3 or 4 seconds here). So maybe firm **JIT** is not as good as the author's one but it's mostly a back end in first place, with optional jitting feature. Then as a backend, it's faster to compile than LLVM.

MIR must be moved to Mars!

Hmm MJIT looks rather horrible ... There are macros everywhere which is how it achives the small size.
